a time when the grown-ups have got to do their jobs. >> if you don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee and we'll lose. >> we begin tonight with the continuing effort to assess the damage and begin the cleanup from hurricane sandy. president obama traveled to new jersey today, the state hardest hit by the massive storm to meet with hurricane victims and state officials led by republican governor chris christie. the two men toured southern new jersey on the ground and from the air over flooded streets, flattened houses and piers washed out to sea. reporters did not accompany the president and governor christie as they flew on marine one, the president's helicopter. governor christie, who had been spending most of his days prior to the storm attacking the president on the campaign trail, today thanked him. >> i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we have lots of challenges. our challenge now is to get back to normalcy. and i cannot thank the president enough for his personal c
to survey the wost of the damage alongside the state's governor chris christie. the deadly storm responsible for 59 deaths according to the app and 59 billion in damage, ripped up boardwalks and left 2 million without power. governor christie has take an prominent role in the disaster recovery but also been content to share the spotlight with the president. despite the fact that christie remains a surrogate for the romney campaign, his praise of the commander in chief storm response has been oversized and unsensored, downright christy-en. this display of bipartisan has created confusion on both sides of the aisle. in today's "new york times" maureen dowd writes that, quote -- white house officials seem a bit flummoxed by christie's bear hug. they speculate christie who always puts chris fi first has decided it's better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue state governor with a democratic chief executive exiting in 2016 than to have president romney and tea party republicans in congress pulling him to the extreme right for the next eight years. christie for his part shrugged o
jersey and the president will tour the devastation with the chief executive new jersey chris christy. >> gretchen: when the president comes the city is shut down . the city can't have security detail and anything like that at all. but he will go to new jersey which is your home eric. >> i am trying to figure out why. i get it he wants to see the damage. please come can go and sign the check to help fema to sign over the money . chris christie was on saying that we have gotten acess to the funs we are going to need. i am not sure what touring the sight. >> steve: it is smart politics for the president. there is chris christie helping the people on the jersey shore. it is essentially politically if you talk about it he is coopting one of rom romm's visible surrogate and it is good for chris christie his state will go for barack obama example it is a win, win as the campaign starts today. chris christie was out and shook a lot of hand and a lot of people were waiting to see him there and there he was. watch this. >> you have to see the people that are affected by this. they need to see
see the president of the united states shaking hands with chris christy. when they were in marine 1 and touring the shore line. someone had wrote romney. romney was a message that they got from marine one. >> election is not that far away. >> gretchen: meanwhile the widespread destruction for sandy is most expensive in history. people are slowly getting back to daily routines. six million remain without power and could be weeks before the lights are turned back on. and the death tollis up to 74 . that number expected to keep climbing as workers comb through rubble. battery park of new york and we'll have the latest. good morning to you . >> we are right here in battery park underpass here walking along the police line. can'tcan't get further . there is 50 fet water. the president is been asked to send in crews in to try to dry this out. we'll be with them later today. we can tell you thatiers jers is dealing with all sors of transportation issues as limp new york some of the subway systems will start to run at 6:00 today right around now it will get busy. we have live pictures for y
the images we're looking at right there. this was wednesday, president obama and chris christie touring some of the devastated areas. yes, they came together for all the right reasons. chris christie was the keynote speaker at the republican convention. he's a key ally of mitt romney. did that image hurt the romney campaign? >> well, i'm sure that it cautioned a lot of angst backstage, and i'm sure that in the obama campaign the operatives were saying, yes, we've got chris christie at our side with these extraordinary images, but, again, both sides say we now know where the votes are. we know there are very few undecided. need to get them to polls and on time on tuesday. >> as they are working to get people to the polls, mitt romney is saying i'm the agent of change and president obama is saying you know me. you know what i'm standing for. how effective are the arguments? >> at this point i think everybody knows the arguments. i think that the country is ready to have this election over, matt, and they have pretty much made up their minds. we'll see. governor romney today is going to have ev
. he was on the phone with governors and mayors all up and down the eastern seaboard. chris christie, the governor of new jersey, his state was hardest hit. he had made some very favorable comments. over the last couple of months they made some really favorable comments. so, here is a moment in which a president can show great leadership, an opportunity to demonstrate the power of the white house or incumbency, or he can screw it up and bought everything, losing the election because of it. he is probably tilting towards the leadership right now. there have not been any serious critiques of the obama handling of the storm in the aftermath. what is mitt romney to do? he is in this middle place, where there is no role for an opposition candidate. no accepted script for what one of these candidates is supposed to do when one of these storms come along. there is a risk for both sides and a benefit that advantages obama more than mitt romney. >> governor romney will be in florida for these three rallies. also, vice-president joe biden. there it is. we will show you governor romney in flori
is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one into baskets before being hoisted to safety. now let's go to breezy point. a neighborhood of queens which looks
. let's get back to the aftermath of sandy. new jersey governor chris christie is speaking now. let's listen in. >> i, yesterday, spoke to 12 of my governor colleagues around the country, republicans and democrats, all of them agreed to send workers to new jersey to restore power. the president gave me his word yesterday that it was going to take them too long to drive here that he would send c-130 transport planes to load their equipment and themselves and fly them to new jersey. we've met with fema this afternoon with all the utility company executives and i told them that they weren't leaving the building until they gave fema the list of personnel they would need in order to get power restored much more quickly than what they've announced publicly so far. and as i left here -- i left trenton to come here, i can tell you that i was told by my staff that those meetings as to jcpl and back to trenton the psge meeting will be successful and completed and those resources already headed to new jersey. bob mcdonald is sending 1,500 workers from virginia. john kasich is sending 1,500, ev
at the federal level. what would be doing right now hoping chris christie gets it it right in new jersey? but the federal government wouldn't do anything? and then forget the state and local government. are you kidding me? privatize it? how insane is that? so if you're poor and you couldn't afford whatever rates that romney's friends were going to charge you after he privatized it, sad day for you? ha ha, you get stuck in that? that's a disastrous idea! this is about the core role of the government. are we here for each other in times like this or do we just leave each other to fend for ourselves. apparently romney clearly says during this election cycle during these primary debates they had among the republicans says fend for yourselves, i'm going to make a buck off of it. he was asked about that numerous times today on the campaign trail. he just wouldn't answer. watch. >> cenk: well, that was wonderfully awkward. those are simple questions. answer the question. finally, how incompetent is your campaign? you didn't
also fanned out across atlantic city. and governor chris christie had some harsh words for the city's mayor for failing to order evacuations. >> many people said to us no, the mayor said we can stay here. i mean those are the kind of mixed messages that at their worst moment can cost lives. >> we had waves as high as the light poles down on the boardwalk. >> experts put a price tag on $10 billion to $20 billion for sandy and that makes it one of the most expensive in history. >>> sandy helped trigger a huge snowstorm further inland. at least two feet of snow fell in west virginia and tennessee and north carolina. storm caused several accidents and left many stranded on roads and thousands without power. a winter storm warning remains in effect for those areas until tonight. so we know it could have been a lot worse around here topper? >> last year we had a snowstorm on this date pretty much. not much downtown but 10-inches in the northern burrens. >> that's nothing like what we saw yesterday. >> this was incredible and you know i think in some ways we were lucky. i mean we had 60, 7
. want to bring the governor on governor chris christie is talking about what more needs to be done. >> we need people to stay off the road. motor heists should check 511-nj.org for up to the minute information on road closures. we'll talk about the power situation. right now state-wide, these are approximate numbers, everybody. they're approximate numbers. 35,000 people state-wide without power. 21,000 of those are the atlantic city electric area. 13,000 from jcp & l and about 1,000 for psg & e from orange and rockland county company. bpu is working to assist after the industries obtain the needed approvals for essential sji employees and subcontractors to access atlantic city many support of the combined heat and power generation units servicing revel and borgada, and we're also monitoring the utility companies' efforts to open stage and housing areas to accommodate the thousands of outside crews and their heavy equipment that are migrating into the state to assist in our recovery efforts and that stuff has already begun. currently there's 15 staging areas that set up around the s
buildings and stranded many motorists. new jersey's governor, chris christie, weighing in on the damage earlier today. >> i will first say to all of you, especially those out there facing loss, devastation, and heartbreaking reality your home may be gone, we're with you. we have a long road ahead of us but i have complete confidence we're going to come out of this better and stronger than before. this state is too tough to give into this type of devastation. jenna: we're still getting a look at some of that devastation in new jersey. across the river in new york city, much of lower manhattan was plunged into darkness as the storm closed in on the city last night. it hurled a record-breaking 13 foot storm surge into the southern tip of the island right where jon was standing yesterday. we'll show you his shot yesterday in a little bit to show you exactly what this looked like. basically in lower manhattan the world's financial capital, was submerged and water was sent pouring into the subway system which is not operating today. as cleanup efforts get underway the national guard is headed
chris christie today toured hard hit areas of hurricane sandy. their survey of the devastation reminded americans of how many people are suffering from the storm and how essential it is for government to help them. and then governor christie, the man mitt romney handpicked to give the keynote address at his convention began to praise president obama. >> obviously i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together and we saw an opportunity to discuss it at length. and then going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks, seeing the president and his concern. he has sprung into action immediately while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. this is our sixth conversation since the weekend and it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the jobs that people elected us to do and i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and co
on shore near atlantic city. new jersey governor chris christy issuecyst christie spoke in his own style -- >> don't be stupid. go to higher, safer ground. >> reporter: forecasters say parts of new york city could get the brunt of sandy. an 1-foot wall of water. 375,000 residents have been ordered to leave low-lying areas sunday. >> leave by 7:00 p.m. today -- >> reporter: widespread power outages are expected all along sandy's path. >> i don't want to -- >> i very my life, that's why. >> some people are saying? >> some people love their houses more than they love life. i don't want to be down here. >> reporter: we have been getting reports from the coast guard this morning it a ship that was in distress off the coast of north carolina. the "bounty," 150-foot-long ship. at last report we're told that 14 people have been rescued, two are still missing. meanwhile here in atlantic city the worst is yet to come. charlie, nora? >> jeff glor, thank you. south of atlantic city, coastal areas of maryland and delaware also under evacuation order. we have more from ocean city marylan
to get the hell off of the beach, new jersey governor chris christie is warning residents not to underestimate sandy's strength. >> i can be cynical as any of you. but when the storm comes as bad as they predecict it would be. you will wurb you were not sinial. >> if you are ordered to evacuate do so . cover windows and secure the outdoor furniture and things we all heard and nice reminders. in addition to buying weather radios. femo recommends down loading their app. >> a lot of people have things that could be projectiles. cute scarecrow named mole bring it n. >> at a they are calling if frankenstorm. >> and go on line to foxnews.com, at any time. >> this store store dealing with nation's national security. authorities in indonesia busted a terror plot. even militants are in custody. they are accused of planning atax on a slew of western targets including our u.s. embassy there. david piper is following the news for us. >> hi, harris is an attack for indonesia and that country's security forces managed to stop it with swift intervention. the cargets and the u.s. embassy
, the republican for governor and chris christie. this is his third trip to the state. he has campaigned so often, he says he is thinking of moving here. he has campaigned for the republican ticket. host: i'm sure they would miss the governor dearly if he were to leave new jersey and moved to north carolina. let's go to the phones -- our first caller is calling from asheville, n.c., on our line for independences. caller: rob, i'm surprised you did not mention that asheville is a very liberal city and textiles is not our primary industry. i live across the road from billy graham's compound. you did not bring up the fact that he removed mitt romney and mormon is and as a call from his list and has been controversial here. -- as a cult. -- removed mormonism as a cult from his list. for the last two years, republicans have been in control of north carolina, unfortunately. they get into abortion and voter i.d. which was defeated. going back to asheville, we are a liberal city. i have already voted for obama and i voted for him in 2008 and i think he is the answer for this country, not mid romney. host
thought that chris christie would be the october surprise? that this guy would -- >> october political surprise. >> yeah. he would be the october political surprise, that he would stand up and it's true, and say the president has been incredible, he's been on the phone every time i needed him. today when he was asked, he said i haven't talked to the president today because i don't need to because fema is doing everything they asked. but if i need to, i'll call him and he'll be there. >> so if this election is about the economy, how important was the jobs report that came out today? >> i think it was important the consumer confidence number important, the number that shows retail sales going up was important. and that's all reflected in the polling. there is a lot of different polling. for example, in the purple poll, you now see the lines crossing on whether or not people think the economy is doing better. a year ago people had no notion, no belief that the economy was doing better. so a lot more economic confidence, i think bill clinton told a powerful story at the convention this was
transit. bloomberg and chris christie is reiterating why it's like nothing we've seen before. >> this is a massive storm. >> when it comes in tonight, we can't come in and rescue you. it's going to be dark, electricity most likely will be out if it's not already. >> i'm krystal ball. it's not just mere in the tri-state area. capitol hill is shut down as washington weathers the storm. president obama is tracking developments from the white house where he spoke this afternoon. >> please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. when they tell you to evacuate, you need to evacuate. do not delay. don't pause. don't question the instructions that are being given, because this is a serious storm and it could potentially have fatal consequences. >> this storm is so massive, so unlike anything we've seen before that parts of the country like here in west virginia are bracing for blizzard conditions. we begin our breaking coverage with nbc's ron allen. he's along the "jersey shore." ron, describe the conditions where you are right now. >> reporter: it's gotten much wor
look at this and i see the news this week with romney's top surrogate, chris christie effusively praising obama's leadership. now this afternoon we have news that michael bloomberg who previously said he was not going to endorse in the presidential race has decided to endorse sandy as a reason for doing this. you know, tough to say, but it seems to me there's got to be some political upside in this for obama in terms of the election on tuesday. >> i think you're right. it might be marginal, but, you know, my analysis and i think it's probably yours, i think it's what the data shows is that romney needed one more little push to get over the edge in these closing days. if you look at the electoral map and polling, yes, it's close enough, yes, the ground game may determine what happens, but it seems to me in my analysis romney needed a little bit of a push, and he's definitely not getting a little bit of a push. if anything, i think there's a marginal benefit for the president in these last few days. now, i hate for the election to be decided by last-minute theatrics and a freak of

obama visited the state with governor chris christie and spoke about the government's response to the disaster. this is 15 minutes. >> good afternoon, everybody. i want to thank the members that are here. i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together, surveying the damage up and down the coast line. we wanted to show the president that personally. we have the opportunity to discuss it. and over to the shelter and meet with folks and have them see the president and his concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. we have a lot of challenges. things we need to do to make sure we get power restored as quickly as possible, that people have clean water, hospitals are taking care of things they need to when we get kids back to school. i discussed all those issues with the president and i am pleased to report he has sprung into action immediately to give us those things while we were in a car together. i want to thank him for that. he has worked with me since before the storm. this is our sixth conversation si
